    Be honest, how many of your cornet sections out there can play the beginning of Voyage of Discovery, with all playing in unison?!?!?!?.....

    Anyone mastered it yet?

    Any hints?

    Our lower brass seem to have it cracked, but the cornet section are playing it in bit more of a 'serialist' style at the moment. :D

    Good piece, still waiting for the 'tune' to happen though! :tongue:

    We have still my Birthday yet and Christmas before we start to look at it.:)

    Also we have got Butlins Contest as well to do, plus i might have won the Lottery before i have got to play it.:confused:
    We have got the parts but to be 100% honest with you it will not be a easy push over piece for any 1st section band at all, probably the most hardest we have since the 1st section area was set up.
    I play 2nd Baritone and that looks pretty damn hard but no doubt i will practise like hell to play my part as i always do.:woo :guiness :tup
    Never gone on a contset with out not been able to play my part:tup

    I'm sure our 'expert' cornet section will rattle it off with minimal trouble...after months of hard practice.

    Sounds a pretty good piece, audience and rehearsal friendly and a good challenge for all the bands. Look forward to getting my teeth stuck into it.
    Here's hoping the voyage is a pleasant one! :biggrin:

    I think the bass part is really awkward in the first section. Those semiquavers are totally illogical until you get to the 5/4 bar and I'm having my work cut out trying to get my fingers round the bar before the 5/4.

    I also think the bit at N is ****. I've almost convinced myself that corys use their euphs on the recording.:mad:

    Does anyone know anything about the 2nd bar of S (I think) where the Eb Basses have a D and the BBbs have a G (2nd half of the bar. It sounds foul on the recordings I have heard. Is the man on here?

    The piece in great IMO, a bit jealous the Cornets have the fun runs at the start...but I'm dealing with it! LOL

    So far, band is doing well with it, just the bass section obviously hate it! LOL

    Clearly this is an old thread from before we started the Area 2006 forums that has been resurrected. I will lock this thread now and please can we ask you all to limit posts about your respective Area pieces to the "area test pieces 2006" thread found in the new forum. Thanks
